MIKE + NATALIA // ENGAGEMENT SESSION // SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA

It is with great joy to share this engagement session with you! 

Natalia and Mike are high school sweethearts (yes, I know, another couple that are high school sweethearts!) and got engaged late last year. I have known Natalia since I was seven years old. We grew up on the same street, were best friends in childhood, and remained in touch over the years. I have so much love for her and her family (her mom and my mom are close friends)! It's always so crazy to witness people you grow up with as kids get married or start a family, which is very much the norm in my life right now. So naturally, I knew I would love Mike as well.

When you see both of them as a couple, you can tell that them being together is really easy. Sure, all relationships take work, that is inevitable, but they make it look effortless because of how much love you can tell they both have for one another. 

Once Natalia sent me a text saying that they wanted me to be their wedding photographer, we quickly started talking about plans for the wedding and, of course, the ENGAGEMENT SESSION. The flight was quickly booked to visit them in NorCal and off I went a few months later. It was such a fantastic (even though short... wahh!) trip and their session couldn't have turned out more beautiful. Mike and Natalia took me to this gorgeous beach and hiking location for their photos called Lands End and Sutro Baths, and you guys...this place did not disappoint! At all. Check out some of the highlights of my favorites below. :)

Can't wait for these two to say I do next Spring! Xo
